Watching England's victory in the fourth Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street in Durham reminded me of the way the great Australian team under Steve Waugh won matches from seemingly hopeless situations. What Australia has done to all the other teams in that golden period was done to them by England. With a great opening partnership put up by Chris Rogers and David Warner, everything seemed lost for England at one stage.
These two completely opposite characters, with the most different attitude towards batting, put on a magical display of Test-class batting. Rogers was ever watchful and very protective of his wicket. Never wanting to chance a flowing attractive shot if there was any possibility of losing his wicket. While at the other end Warner was as always busy looking and ready for an opportunity to pounce on anything wide and sloppy to hit.
